Full Stars! - Edit

Fantastic food, atmosphere, service and quality! Would go back to Orlando just for them!!

Great way to get some real food, I got the vegan number 23 and it was perfect!
They even roast their own coffee!
Being a vegan at universal studios was a little difficult, but this place was a perfect way to get away from all the chains and junk food.

Excellent food and service - Edit

The food was superb and the experience unique. We had a shared plate with various food items on a large dish.

You could eat vegetarian, children, lamb or beef. You can order from the vegetarian section and they had a very decent selection.

The shared experience of eating from the same plate was nourishing to the soul and relationships.

Try it, you will benefit from the experience.

Good find for vegetarians in tourist area - Edit

Ethiopian food might not be what one would expect to find on Orlando's International Drive not far from Universal Studios but Nile Ethiopian Restaurant is a pleasant surprise. It's in a small strip mall right off the street and not far from a couple pretty decent Indian restaurants, as well. I usually go for a combination platter, to enjoy the variety of tastes that Ethiopian offers, and Nile's offering is pretty consistent. The injera was very fresh and light and the spiciness, particularly the misir wot, was very restrained. Some Ethiopian restaurants seem to overdo the spiciness level of misir wot but not Nile. The service was reasonably attentive.

Pros: Location and easy parking, It's Ethiopian food!, Really good injera

Cons: Strip mall maybe a bit sketchy

Simply delicious food - Edit

This is one of my favorite restaurants. I can't get enough of their injera. I love the yellow split peas (kik alicha); they are not spicy at all, which is great for me. The red lentils are awesome too, and so is the cabbage. Pretty much every vegetarian entree/appetizer is vegan.

The service can be very slow. If you're in a rush, definitely ask for your check early. And if you're not, take your time and enjoy the lovely atmosphere and delicious food.

Pros: food

Cons: slow paced

Take heed - Edit

Food tasted ok. Yet, though I purchased 52.00 worth of food, they charged me additional 5.00 sharing fee. The food wasn't good enough for me to tolerate that. Bad policies deserve notice folks.

Pros: Good tasting food

Cons: Expensive, Dirty

Quaint gem - Edit

This place is pretty near the happening International & Sand Lake intersection, but tucked out of the way in a weird little plaza. Awesome, flavorful vegan dishes (I had the veggie combo), and the injera is half whole wheat half teff. They have a lunch combo that's a little different. I was there for dinner, and I think the combo is really the only way to go as a veg*n, so you get some good greens, beans and salad.

Pros: Delicious, outdoor seating (view of parking lot)

Cons: Regulars are a little noisy, if you care
